Once I ran autopatcher.exe with the /report option, it logs the command line arguments.
Here is an updated autopatcher.log:
AutoPatcher 5.6 loaded the filesystem.
AutoPatcher was run with the following commandline arguments: /unattend /noreboot /log /report /verbose /answerfile:d:\WPI\install\apup_Win2003_XP_x64_DotNet\apup_Win2003_XP_x64_DotNet.aaf
Detected English (1033) Service Pack 2
Internet Explorer: 6.0.3790.3959
Windows Media Player: 10.0.0.3997
Windows Installer: 3.1.4000.3959
Microsoft SharePoint Designer:
After windows is rebooted, these are my observations:
1. new ie7 shortcut icon on the desktop (good)
2. windows update (icon in the bottom right system\notification tray) indicates there are updates available that should have been installed with autopatcher (not good)
3. double-clicking on the ie7 desktop shortcut for the first time brings up a confirmation dialog:
Internet Explorer is not currently your default browser. Would you like to make it your default browser?
[ ] Always perform this check when starting Internet Explorer.
4. ie ran but looks like ie6
5. clicking on help > about internet explorer indicates IE v7.0.5730.13
6. Trying to browse to www.msn.com for example will bring up an error message:
The requested lookup key was not found in any active activation context.
